Defending as group

Aim - To improve communication and organisation when defending. To improve players awareness and positioning when defending in a group.

Key Points

  1. 1. Good communication, lots of talking from your defenders.
  2. 2. Develop a system where one defender presses the ball and the other two take up appropriate covering positions.
  3. 3. Ensure the pressing is done sharply and with enthusiasm.
  4. 4. When pressing the ball make sure the defender is low and light on his/her feet so he/she can change direction quickly and effectively.
